Hello everyone! Today I want to share a fun little travel album that I made with paper lunch bags. I used the Tim Holtz Paper Stash - Menagerie to create this fun eclectic album.
We'll start with the cover. I made the cover using pieces of blank12x12 Chipboard from the EP store. I can't tell you how handy it is to have this blank chipboard on hand. I use it for so many different projects. It's a must have staple in my stash.
I covered two pieces of chipboard with Tim Hotlz Menagerie papers and the embellished with Prima's Cartographer papers by fussy cutting ballons from the paper. I also added Prima Cartographer 12x12 Paper - Chipboard Self-Adhesive Pieces a few flowers and some embellishments from my stash. To hold the whole album together I created a fun faux leather binder that I made from Kraft paper, an embossing folder and Inka Gold in Copper color.
Now for the inside of the album. This album was made by adhering paper bags together back to back leaving the flap to create pockets. It also leaves the paper bag itself open to insert tags or keepsakes. I will be using this album for a trip I took to Jackson, WY and to Idaho. Here is what the inside of this album looks like. It's loaded with tags and pockets, lots of space to keep your souvenirs from your trip.
You can insert these tags into the opening of the paper bag and use it for photos or journaling.
